Marcel Junod[edit]

All photos on WikiCommons must be allowed to be used by anybody for any purpose. The license you have included for the photos of Marcel Junod is incompatible with this, eg. they can not be used in an article critical against Mr. Junod or The International Red Cross. Unless the photo is relicensed it may have to be deleted. Thuresson 13:31, 29 July 2005 (UTC)

I have permission from the copyright holder to drop the ambiguous term "discredit" from the license on request. Regarding libel and slander, both of these would constitute a use which is illegal in any jurisdiction anyway. In so, these license term does not put any restrictions on the use of these pictures which is not already in place due to legal regulations. Thus, this requirement only reaffirms what's already written in the law. --Uwe 14:11, 29 July 2005 (UTC)

Re:Red Crystal[edit]

Yes, I thought you could ask me about that. But: on the images by Denelson and Zcout the colour is not red, it is:

#d62820 and the red colour (as 'Red Cross' and 'Red Crystal') is #ff0000 . Do you see differences between these two colours ?

I simply wanted to use a perfect red, but if you really think I'm wrong and I have to change the colour I'll do it, of course.
Regards, -- odder 14:24, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

All images replaced. See here. Regards, -- odder 15:23, 1 January 2007 (UTC)
All images have now a white background inside. See here. -- odder 15:56, 1 January 2007 (UTC)
No, that's ok ;) Thanks for your hints about these images.
Grüß, (und einen guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr) -- odder 16:28, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

New image request[edit]

Done, please tell me if there is something wrong with this image. And if you can, add a category there, I didn't know where to categorize it. I've also translated IHL Symbol template into Polish for your request. Best regards, -- odder 16:52, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

There is a small problem: I can make them not until Friday evening, when I come home and where I can use Inkscape (or I'll try to do it on my friend's laptop, but don't count on that, really). So if you can wait to Friday, I would be very happy ;) Of course I'll make these images, there's no problem with that. -- odder 15:26, 8 January 2007 (UTC)
Ok, first image done. These two I'll make at home, on Friday: there is no good mouse on my friend's laptop [you propably know how is it with laptops..]. Please add a category, license and a good description to the image, I would be very thankful. GruB, --odder 19:15, 8 January 2007 (UTC)
Today is Friday, so: second and third image are done. Please add a good description there if you can. I hope they're not wrong ;) Regards, -- odder 20:01, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

Template:IHL Symbol[edit]

~Hi Uwe, I've translated the text into Dutch as follows :

Het gebruik van het afgebeelde symbool wordt geregeld door enkele internationale verdragen, in het bijzonder de Conventies van Den Haag (1899 en 1907), de Conventies van Genève (1949) en hun additionele protocollen van 1977 en 2005, alsmede door bijkomende zowel verdragsrechtelijke als gewoonterechtelijke voorschriften van het Internationaal Humanitair Recht. Misbruik van dit symbool is niet alleen verboden door deze verdragen, maar ook door de nationale rechtsregels van de ratificerende landen. Deze beperkingen staan bovendien los van de auteursrechtelijke status van de hier vertoonde afbeelding.
I used The dictionary of the European Union to retrieve the official translations. JoJan 16:45, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

Image:Flag of the ICRC.svg[edit]

Well, the ICRC wrote the foundation and said the image was wrong. I fixed the PNG image, but am unable to work on the svg image at this time. Cary "Bastiqe" Bass demandez 17:11, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

And had you bothered looking at the superceded link I added, you'd have been able to find a link to the archived correspondence as well as the correct logo. It is wrong, the ICRC have asked us to remove the wrong image (and I'm offering an opportunity to update it), and you had no business reverting me. Cary "Bastiqe" Bass demandez 17:13, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Clotrimazole[edit]

Well.. it's on my to-do list since yesterday ;) Like other non-SVG images from your featured articles in the German Wikipedia that could be redrawn into SVG :) (I've used this page, hope it's good for you). I really enjoy creating SVGs for your articles :) Greets, /odder 14:08, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Ok, created. Here you are. /odder 16:57, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Geneva Conventions[edit]

Aah, sorry for that. I didn't know that the location of these boxes (in line with the timeline) was intentional :> This of course needs to be fixed, I'm gonna do it in few minutes. odder 10:27, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

Done. Hope it looks like you want it to ;) odder 11:26, 6 August 2007 (UTC)
Fixed. Have a look. odder 13:01, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

Hello, UW!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

{{IHL Symbol}}[edit]

It would be good if you as the creator of the template took a look at the essay I wrote on the limitations of the template. Feel free to comment, either on the essay talk page or the template talk page. --SaMi 18:40, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

Feel free to do whatever you believe to be correct. Splitting the template into whatever number is needed to specifically cover the situation for every country and symbol is as good for me as any other solution. --Uwe (talk) 12:22, 29 April 2010 (UTC)
